stories

"ECU's Photomedia course was the best course on offer"
Claire Martin
Claire MartinECU Photomedia graduate

It wasn't like it was close to where I lived, or that I knew anyone studying here... I just looked, and ECU offered the best course for what I wanted.

I started out studying Social Work. I was always interested in social and environmental issues, which inform my work. The environment and social justice were my interests – but communications and photomedia – these were the tools.

My lecturers encouraged me to participate in Foto Freo, a festival that focused on photojournalism. I got some practical experience interning with the festival, and that really was the catalyst for me becoming passionate about documentary style work.
